    Electric smoker advice

    I know some of you guys are some great smokers of wild game, ribs, pork etc. Im looking for a new electric smoker and wonder if anyone has any preferences or reviews of what you've bought. Just kind of tired of doing the charcoal one and would like to just plug it in and let er go. thanks for any replies!

    Find one that'll get down to 100 deg.

    Don't get one where you are married to over-priced hard to find sawdust pucks.

    A window is not worth an extra $100.

    I have this one and have not had any issues. Got it at Cabela's on sale for under $150 a few years ago.

      I have used a Brinkmann Kettle smoker for the last 10 years. The electric element has only one setting: on or off. I'd like to put a variable switch in it to help control the heat and keep it constant. Depending on the time of year/weather, the temperature can vary quite a bit. I have done pork butts, ribs, smokes sausage, smoked hams, jerky, slim jims, chicken, and turkey breast on it. All have been great. I have an old moving blanket which I used to insulate it when it is cooler out to help stabilize the temperature. Easy fix with that.

        I'm having a great time with my Masterbuilt .
        Simple to use, adjustable heat and plenty of space, not to mention the price is easy on the wallet.

                  Glad you found one you like. I have used electric before, finally went with propane, much more control and wood chip options.

                    I have one and its a hunk of garbage. I then got smart and got into real smoking. Those pucks make for a terrible white, poofy smoke flavor that does not compliment the meat at all. Id tell him to save his money, go for a real smoker. If he insists, id say a cajun injector. Ive had decent food off of a cajun injector, set it and forget it.

                      I have the exact same smoker. $5 at an Auction.

                      Best $5 I ever spent.


                      Ii also help Control the temp with an old blanket
